trump Iowa

“Is the VA not doing the job?”

For 21 years, a wounded veteran who served with the 101st Airborne fought for his nation. On Tuesday, in an emotionally charged face-to-face meeting, Donald Trump promised to take this veteran’s side in the ex-soldier’s current battlefield: the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Trump was answering questions at a Sioux City, Iowa, campaign stop when a wounded veteran named Todd was given the opportunity to speak.

“These are our greatest people. The wounded warriors. These are the greatest. The best,” Trump said before leaving his podium to greet the man and his family.

“With the current administration, warrior care is lacking to say the least…especially post-service,” Todd said to Trump, noting that he did not work and his wife, April, was his caregiver. “What will the Trump administration do better than the Obama administration?”

“Is the VA not doing the job?” Trump asked.

April explained that Todd was supposed to enroll in a new VA program, but can’t get an appointment.

Trump acted decisively. He told Todd and his wife to put their information on a card and give it to him so he could champion their cause.

“I am going to put pressure on the VA like you won’t believe,” Trump said to major applause from the crowd. “Let’s see if we can get this.”

“As president, I can guarantee it. As Trump I can say, ‘I’ll probably be able to pull it off anyway.’” he told the family as the crowd around him cheered. “Because they know it won’t stop. It’ll be easier to take Todd and just say ‘Look, Todd, we’re gonna work with you.”

Trump then discussed the VA’s “terrible” shortcomings. “The waits now are worse than they’ve ever been. Thousands of people dying, waiting for a doctor,” he said.

To fix the situation, Trump said he would allow veterans in need of care to receive treatment at any local hospital, which Trump said would cost less and improve the quality of care.

“We’re going to take care of our vets,” he told the crowd. “We’re going to take care of the VA.”

    As one attempting to care for his service connected disabled Vietnam Veteran brother, I am impressed.
    The VA has cut his meds & reduced his care almost completely in the past year.

    If only Mr. Trump and others of great influence could address our illegally acting court systems. Now a corrupt court is trying to Sheriff Sale our home on November 9th for BNY Mellon who has absolutely no legal interest to prop up state employee pension funds. My LinkedIn profile here will demonstrate just how far they have destroyed this nation & taken our rights for corporate interests. https://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=47607995

    I AM A WITNESS TO FEDERAL CRIMES BY THE STATE OF OHIO AGAINST ITS OWN CITIZENS! I currently have two U.S. Flags Flying Upside Down & Crime Scene Tape on my home in protest for what they have done to us with “Judges Hiding Financial Conflicts of Interest” & Kasich’s refusal to investigate multiple civil rights violations, aggravated theft & RICO Crimes!

    As you will see I am qualified to make these statements & I refuse to allow this to happen…no matter what. Five Judges laughed at my Civil Rights, Due Process & much more. JUDGE TARYN HEATH LAUGHED & SAID SHE HAD IMMUNITY. HER OWN HUSBAND WAS/IS EMPLOYED BY THE PLAINITFF. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

    stupidity and the universe the only two things that are infinite, it tells you in the bible what happens when you turn away from god, but you still don’t listen, if you take up with a nation you turn away from god, you say im going to fallow your statutes and ordinances and to heck with gods, the Muslims have it right what god makes halal (good and right in the eyes of god) the government makes shilk (not right and not fitting in the eyes of god) and what god makes shilk the government takes that and makes it halal, turn nether to the left or the right, will end with, those that live with the sword die by the sword

    Trump is a alpha male and Cruz is a close 2nd and the rest just need to go home.

    • CrowPie

      You didn’t really just put Cruz in the same category with Trump, did you?

      Cruz still thinks that campaigns are kissin babies and shaking hands, while using soothing words to gloss over the truth. He copied Bernie Sanders and told his web address at the debate….like he isn’t backed by real money. What a greedy little pud. He made the statement that he’d like to host SNL…..WTH?
      SNL would be crazy to have him on as floor sweeper. Their ratings are important to them, too. Then he reprimanded the moderators at the debate, juuuuust like Christie did in the first one.

      There isn’t one original thought or emotion in Ted Cruz. He is a greedy gadfly. Let him go sell used cars for a living.

    Remember: Politicians will promise the Electorate *ANYTHING* To get Elected. Then once their snout is firmly in The trough, watch their promises fade away as the System starts to control them completely. Trump will be no different – as NO-One gets Elected in any “Western Democracy” without the approval of the Same Elites that control Government from Behind The scenes. :sad:

    Sure – they call him a “buffoon” etc and anything else. He’s the only one that talks like a real human being. And in my opinion he is the only one that is really sacrificing his time and treasure for the good of the country. Easy to take shots at him – sure – but he has stepped up to the challenge. Carson has been swept up due to first standing up at that White House “prayer breakfast” – but he is not equipped and also he is in favor of vaccines.

  • David Gordon

    So Trump did not know the VA was a cesspool of graft and insolence. He didn’t know that 200,000+ deaths are attributed to lack of care? Did he not know that 22 vets off themselves a day? He may be the only hope – but he better wake the F up if he wants the independent, alternative and patriot vote.

      Where are you getting he doesn’t know? One of the reason he includes improving the vets situation in his speeches is directly correlated to his overall message that the whole system is in disarray. Ridiculous to jump his case when he is not responsible but is exerting all effort to get in and do something. Cast your derision at those who have been in office.

  • Armed Gentleman

    I believe every nation should take the utmost care of our veterans. My biggest regret in life is not serving.
    I wish I could say, I defended my country and fought for my country. I wish I had that experience and now Im 34 and its too late. I’m a healthy capable young man and I always secretly wish they would do a draft for men 18-40, I’d go in a heartbeat.

    why use a headline that makes Trump look like the bad guy just to get views. this is occult stuff – negative energy, which is keeping your country in a bottomless pit

    the only way out of this negativie energy is by turning to that small light in your heart and following it no matter what :grin:
